Admission consultation to increase the Published Admission Number (PAN) for Year 7 intake from September 2021

13th November 2019

The School Admissions Regulations 2012 require local authorities to publish annually information regarding proposed changes to school admission arrangements.

Comberton Village College is undertaking a consultation proposing to increase its Published Admission Number (PAN) from 240 to 270 for the Year 7 intake effective from September 2021. Click here to see our policy for 2021-2022. 

The proposed change is in response to the current demand for places in the Comberton feeder catchment area, for the increasing number of children who require secondary school provision. 

The school has the capacity to take these extra numbers and there will be no additional building/facilities needed to allow us to increase our PAN to this number. In addition, the admission arrangements remain unchanged.

This consultation is being undertaken by Comberton Village College with support from Cambridgeshire County Council. The Annual Consultation of Admission Arrangements in Cambridgeshire is taking place between 18th November 2019 to 12th January 2020 and the documents are available to view on the county’s website:

Comberton Village College would like to invite views on the proposed increase of the PAN from September 2021. 

Any comments or suggestions can be made either by writing to the school, marking letters for attention of Ms Daniela Glass or by emailing

If emailing, please state COMBERTON PROPOSAL in the subject line.

Responses to this consultation will be submitted as part of a significant change business case to the DfE, before a final decision is made by the Regional Schools Commissioner.
